Comma issues and capitalizing after semi-colons

There is confusion around independent clauses and comma splices. It detects some but doesn't give enough feedback to understand how to fix it and you end up in a loop of errors. It often cannot detect unnecessary commas. Even when PWA tells me that there are no errors on a paper, instructor feedback always finds several comma issues in the paper.
PWA always suggests capitalizing the first word after a semi-colon.
